Samenvatting

The notion of 'camp' seems opposed to the more solid city and its almost permanent architecture. In this contribution, we regard the camp as a spatial concept with a twofold appearance: as both repressing and freeing, as a site for both larger, planned strategic activities, and smaller scale tactic acts of urban design. The camp is not only seen as the situation in which the nomos of civil society is set aside (as in Guatanomo bay, the camp outside the city) (Agamben 2002), but also regarded in a more 'joyful' situation: the polis itself as camping site. It is this latter interpretation, which we will try to explore through the example of the Central American city of San Jose.
